Igor Kalinauskas “Magician Chamber”
Psychologist, philosopher, musician Igor Kalinauskas has managed to realize himself in the field of stage direction, practical psychology, philosophy and music. But, perhaps, the greatest popularity was brought to Kalinauskas by the system of development of personality DFC (differentiated functional conditions). It is an alloy of ancient and modern knowledge. On the basis of DFC system an independent management of psychoemotional condition leading to better efficiency of self-realization is possible. It is a natural continuation of his experience in practical psychology that Igor Kalinauskas began to be engaged in painting -DFC technique is also destined to people of creative trades.
In 2010 Igor Kalinauskas' project “Initial Space” on a topic of mutual relations of practical psychology and fine arts was shown in Elena Vrublevskaya gallery. His new exhibition “Magician Chamber” continues and develops the research between psychoemotional and art fields.
History of «Magician Chamber». The composition was created in 2004 in St.-Petersburg. It consists of 9 pictorial works in canvas-oil technique. According to the artist’s idea the frames made as a black mirror (piano lacquer) reflect space and people who are around the pictures. Until now the composition was kept in a specially equipped premise of Igor Kalinauskas Moscow workshop and was used as space for internal work and work with DFC technique. In May Moscow spectator will have the opportunity to see "Magician Chamber"for the first time. It will be shown as a part of installation accompanied by the author's music.
